About the Department
Teaching has been considered as a noble profession in our country. Teachers are known as transmitters, inspirers and promoters of man's eternal quest for knowledge. Teachers have gained high place and reputation in the society due to those inborn teachers of ancient times that sacrificed their life for teaching. Initially only those persons were used to accepted or permitted for teaching who had inherent quality to become an effective teacher. Afterwards expansion of school system demanded more good teachers and system of teacher training came in to existence. Through teacher training those are trained in teaching skills that are desirous to enter in the teaching profession with perfection. This trend is prevailing with the rapid expansion in the field of teacher education in different dimensions to produce effective teachers.
